basic question on Rubi 4.2 output from Int[] command

Using Rub 4.2:

---------------------
ShowSteps = False;
int = ((2^(-x) - 3^(-x))/x)^a;
Assuming[Element[a, Integers] && a > 0, Int[int, x]]
----------------------

(((2^(-x) - 3^(-x))/x)^a*x^a*
Int[(2^(-x) - 3^(-x))^a/x^a, x])/(2^(-x) - 3^(-x))^a

My question, Am I reading this right: I see the
integrand printed again, but it is outside the
integration again. So it did not do the integration
(neither did Mathematica) but why then I see the integrand
printed again outside the integral?

thanks,
